One of the most anticipated episodes of The Biggest Loser is Makeover Week. Tonight fashion consultant Tim Gunn and hair stylist Tabatha Coffey help give the six remaining contestants a makeover.
The contestants travel to a suite at the Four Seasons Hotel that is filled with some great clothes they get to choose from with the help of Tim Gunn. Next they go to to a spa for a makeover with Tabatha Coffey, she even convinces Rudy to shave his beard.
After their transformation the contestants give an inspirational speech to an audience of three hundred people. Before they enter the auitorium the contestants have an emotional reunion with their families.
The speeches were indeed inspirational, Allen spoke about how he felt like a liability as a fireman. Danny talked about how his daughter wanted a belly like his and how it was a wake up call for him. Rudy revealed his sister died from cancer, which shocked everyone, including Bob and Jillian. Amanda spoke about how being fat held her back from too many things. Rebecca talked about being the fat one and Liz added that she now knows that she needs to take care of herself now, not just everyone else.
This week was an amazing prize for the challenge. The winner gets a two week trip with their family to The Biggest Loser Resort. To win, the contestants have to pull themselves across a canyon while suspended in a chair on a zip line. Rudy won the challenge and when they all finished they revealed a new picture of themselves.
The last chance workout was intense to makeup for the week of pampering. The contestants are nervous about the weigh in after the distraction of Makeover Week.
